It’s Official New Nintendo Console Coming 2012


So it seems like there was some truth to all those rumors floating around about Nintendo’s next big thing. The company announced today that it will be showing their next console at E3.

It hasn’t been named yet and no one knows what it looks like outside the company. Nintendo intends to keep it that way too…at least for another month and change. The console won’t be available until next year but we’ll all be getting a chance to see and play with one of the as-yet-unamend consoles at this years E3, which is taking place (in my hometown) Los Angeles on June 7th.

There wasn’t much in the way of information besides the E3 bit, but Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata mentioned in an interview with Bloomberg that the company is “proposing a new approach to home video game consoles.”  Iwata also mentioned that there will be no 3D included in this console, stating the lack of wide acceptance of 3D televisions by the public, kind of weird considering they released the 3Ds earlier this year.

If the rumors are correct then there is a lot to be expected from Nintendo’s new console. Hopefully with the announcement being made official now, more tidbits will be released in the coming days.
